Famous Women in History Lined IDEA's Halls During Women's History Month

To commemorate Women's History Month this year, IDEA's social studies teachers devised a scavenger hunt for sharp-eyed scholars to learn about famous women in history while they walked through the halls between classes. Marecya Burton, Adrianna Cofield, Andrea Cofield, and Bill Stevens chose several African-American women who made major contributions to American history, politics, and culture to spotlight. They created posters with images of each woman along with a QR code. When scholars scanned the QR codes using their phones, they were directed to web pages providing more information about each woman's legacy. Then, to show what they had learned, scholars filled out a google form demonstrating their knowledge of each woman to receive prizes in their social studies classes.
